MODESTO — If you’ve driven past Memorial Medical Center at Briggsmore Avenue and Coffee Road in Modesto, you’ve no doubt noticed the image of a red dress projected on the side of the hospital.

It’s there to spotlight support for American Heart Month and the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women awareness campaign, and it will be up till the end of the month.

That national campaign is meant to draw attention to cardiovascular disease and the fact that heart disease and stroke cause one in three deaths among women every year, according to the American Heart Association.

Oh, say can you see?

Football season’s over. The Stockton Ports want you to start thinking about baseball season.

I got an email Wednesday calling on singers in the community to turn out for National Anthem auditions on Saturday, Feb. 25.

Tryout are from 2-3 p.m. Performers should be prepared to sing or play the National Anthem with no background music and in front of an audience. Selected performers will be contacted by the Ports front office for scheduling.

The team will also hire part-time workers for the 2017 season. The Ports are looking for parking, food services, bat boy, merchandise sales, ushering, Kids’ Zones, ticket office, promotional team, and ticket taking.

Applicants will be able to speak with members of the Ports front office staff between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., on Feb. 25.

All candidates must be at least 16 years of age by April 4.

Both the casting call for seasonal game-day employment and National Anthem auditions will take place at Banner Island Ballpark.
